Based on research results show that the constitutionality of the concept of
general election simultaneously in the perspective of the constitution, which is a
consensus that guarantees the establishment of constitutionalism in modern times
generally understood to rely on three elements of agreement namely: agreement on
shared goals or ideals, agreement on the rule of law as the basis of government or
administration of the State, and agreement on the form of constitutional institutions
and procedures. Presidential system through simultaneous elections, namely the
Presidential threshold concept is still used in simultaneous general elections because
it does not conflict with the 1945 Constitution, moreover the use of presidential
threshold is oriented towards strengthening the presidential system adopted in
Indonesia, where there is an effort to place political parties as instruments to achieve
the country's goals with the concept of dividing the political power of parliament into
two axes only. Involvement of the TNI in the Simultaneous Election in Indonesia in
the field of security in principle is aids to the Police. However, the TNI itself has a
policy related to the implementation of Simultaneous Elections which must be guided
by TNI Neutrality including TNI soldiers who are carrying out security to assist the
National Police must be guided by TNI Neutrality. The involvement of the TNI
ignores the neutrality of the TNI, so the consequences of sanctions will be applied to
TNI soldiers who violate them.
